Add tax item to an escrow order

This post is an addition to the article How to add taxes and discounts to a payment order and explains how to add tax item to escrow orders. We will use Taxable plugin as the basic tool for registering custom payment items.

Escrow orders introduced in the HireBee theme. They are processing differently to regular orders. So we should add modifications to make possible for Taxable plugin to add items to an escrow order.

You can add it in a custom plugin or child theme functions.php file. Or use Code Snippets plugin (more details in the instruction).

function arthemes_org_create_escrow_order( $workspace_id, $workspace ) { $order = appthemes_get_order_connected_to( $workspace_id ); if ( ! $order || ! class_exists( 'TAXABLE_Registry' ) ) { return; } $plugin = new TAXABLE_Registry(); $plugin->add_taxes( $order ); } add_action( 'waiting_funds_workspace', 'arthemes_org_create_escrow_order', 11, 2 );

Disable receipt emails with 0 total for Vantage and Clipper themes

Receipt emails always send if option "Charge for Items" enabled in Vantage or Clipper themes. Even in cases when order total amount is 0.

There is no setting to disable such empty receipt emails, but it can be done using a small mod.

You can add it in a custom plugin or child theme functions.php file or use Code Snippets plugin (more details in the instruction).

function arthemes_org_send_user_receipt( $args ) { if ( ! empty( $args['order'] ) ) { $order = $args['order']; if ( ! (float) $order->get_total() ) { $args['to'] = null; } } return $args; } add_filter( 'appthemes_send_user_receipt', 'arthemes_org_send_user_receipt' );

This code filters parameters of the receipt email and removes the receiver if order total is 0. This will work fine in most cases. But be careful using AppThemes Coupons plugin and 100% discounts as it may also generate orders with zero total.

Group all existing blocks and add group to reusable blocks. Give it a name, for instance "Welcome banner". And remove it from the page.

Customize AppThemes Importer

The AppThemes themes provided with a built-in listing importer, which allows importing new listings using CSV spreadsheets.

Currently, following themes support the AppThemes Importer feature: ClassiPress, Vantage, Clipper and JobRoller.

Listings can be imported with title, description, excerpt, status, author, date, slug, attachments, Geo data (if theme supports), custom fields, taxonomy terms and even taxonomy meta.

Each theme configures the Importer with a list of fields it should process. Site owners can check out this list by downloading sample CSV file and add their listings for import by adding data in appropriate spreadsheet columns.

The only issue is that site owners can't just add few more columns in a listings table and expect that the Importer will add this data to new listings.

The Importer doesn't understand where to add this new data, such as custom fields, taxonomy terms or post core fields.
